Ever wonder how Summerside’s big old heritage homes survive our Maritime
climate and keep their occupants warm? On Saturday November 19th, the public is invited to gather at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre, 205 Prince Street at 1:00 p.m. to consider the preservation of our Heritage Buildings in times of high energy costs.
Josh Silver, Red Seal Carpenter and Learning Manager for Holland College’s new Heritage Retrofit Carpentry Program will present a talk on how the College is giving carpenters the special skills required to work on PEI’s hundreds of heritage buildings of all types. The public is invited to share the excitement of preserving these amazing cultural resources while minimizing their environmental footprint. The desired outcome is that heritage buildings stay with us and continue to tell our stories found in the details of their architecture.
An interpretive walk led by Wyatt Heritage Properties staff along a few of Summerside’s celebrated heritage streetscapes will follow. The event goes rain or shine, please dress for the weather. Refreshments available.
Presented by Wyatt Heritage Properties assisted by Institute of Architectural Studies and Conservation, PEI. For further information, please call (902) 432-1332 or email Fred Horne.
